  5. "most powerful man"?
    Don't think so.
    Apple is worth more, Obama has his finger on the nukes, and Sergey has to share billing with Larry Page.

  6. Apple might be worth more but it certainly isn't more important than Google.

  7. Yeah, he still gets a little elbow room. Unlike me, I always get sandwiched between two fat women like the one to the left of Sergey. And they usually have multiple big bags. By the time I get up, my leg has fallen sleep from the contortion.

  8. This was probably just a way for him to get free publicity for "Google glasses". YAWN.

  9. I agree with Ratbastard -- I'm less impressed with his billions than the fact that he got a seat on the subway without being crushed. I once got so crushed that I wound up sitting on that raised ridge which marks the end of a seat. With that ridge riding into my asscrack and with the jostling of the subway on the track, I nearly had an orgasm.

    Since this is Towleroad, I'll have to add the required line commenting on the attractiveness of a straight guy - he's kinda hot all bundled up and hidden behind his Clark Kent disguise superglasses.

  10. He is cute especially with the whiskers.

  12. This seems like a staged setup. And those glasses seem like a terrible idea that would be on par with drunk driving, given that people wearing them would have real problems if they were in public, much less driving.

    And a $1,500 pair of glasses? No thanks. Glasses are too easy to lose or break. Enough people relentlessly use their smart phones. I don't need them running into me because they're paying even less attention.
